Tools required for disassembly: Phillips screwdriver, plastic tool such as a guitar plectrum or credit card.

Remove your back cover, battery, sim and memory card. Six screws need to be removed, circled below. LG GW520 disassembly stage 1 Run something like a credit card around the join of the battery compartment to release it from the rest of the phone. Now pry the battery cover away. LG GW520 disassembly stage 2 With the battery compartment removed your phone should look like below. Next remove the two screws you see circled below. LG GW520 disassembly stage 3 Now carefully lift the circuit board away from the phone. It'll still be attached by a ribbon, circled below. The ribbon attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever this away from the circuit board to unplug.  LG GW520 disassembly stage 4 Once you have disconnected the ribbon  in the previous stage you'll be able to remove the circuit board, as shown below. Now remove the six circled screws. Once you've removed the screws you'll be able to lift the keyboard part away from the phone. When you put the phone back together do not over tighten these screws or the slide won't move smoothly. LG GW520 disassembly stage 5 Your phone should now look like below. Now remove the four circled screws. The two on the left are covered with little stickers. Just push these off with your screwdriver. LG GW520 disassembly stage 6 Now run your credit card along the join of the front cover in order to separate the phone into two halves again. Also slide the metal part in the direction shown by the arrows. LG GW520 disassembly stage 7 Your phone should now look like below. A ribbon, circled below, needs to be disconnected. Again this attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever this up, away from the circuit board to unplug. LG GW520 disassembly stage 8 Now flip the ribbon over so you can access the LCD screen. Next remove the piece of blue sticky tape at the bottom of the phone so you can disconnect the circled ribbon. LG GW520 disassembly stage 9 Below is a close up of the connector. To release the ribbon flick the black latch up (see the photo in the next stage). LG GW520 disassembly stage 10 Below you can see the latch once it has been flicked up. The ribbon is now free. LG GW520 disassembly stage 11 Now lever the screen up, as shown below, then carefully pull the screen in the direction shown by the arrow. LG GW520 disassembly stage 12 You should now have the small LCD screen removed. If you only want to remove the LCD screen you don't need to go any further than this. LG GW520 disassembly stage 13 To remove the flex ribbon cable, the circled ribbon connector needs to be disconnected. Again this attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever this up, away from the phone to unplug. LG GW520 disassembly stage 14 You should now have the flex ribbon cable removed. Reverse the whole procedure for reassembly.
